What I want to do is to run two tests. In the first one people will rate whether the given trait / behavior is more fun or smart in the short run or the long run, and to what degree. In the second one people will simply say how "cool" the given trait / behavior is. There should be a correlation between how fun / smart the trait / behavior is in the short run as opposed to the long run and how cool that trait / behavior is. Granted, it won't be causation but it'll be a start. E-mail me if you have any ideas for traits / behaviors you think might mess up the theory and that I should therefore test. I'm game for whatever.
